100% Recommendation for Windbreak Farm B&B

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Windbreak Farm B&B. Bob and Cathy are perfect hosts, making us feel right at home with their genuinely warm, welcoming, and generous spirits. Breakfast was outstanding and our conversations relaxed and inspiring. Staying with them in the country on their lovely farm was more than cathartic for us city dwellers. Our stay at Windbreak Farm as well as attending excellent plays in Stratford — was one of the brightest highlights of our summer; we can’t wait to return next year. Thank you again, Bob and Cathy! The lovely cutting board has quickly become the focal point of our kitchen! And thanks again for the tour of the workshop.

 Had such a great time staying here. Cathy and her husband are such kind people. They are very inviting and down to earth. Our room was beautiful and serene. Loved our private claw bath 🙂 Would come back in a heart beat. Also, Cathy made the most amazing breakfast, everything was fresh and homemade. Sooo good!

paragraph-divider-mdRecommending their BnB to others

My fiance and I stayed here this weekend while we took in a play, and it was an exceptional experience. Kathy and Bob have clearly put a lot of time and thought to restoring their home and there were so many touches that made it clear they wanted their home to feel like a home away from home for their guests. Upon arrival, I took advantage of the lovely claw bathtub, which is situated next to a window that overlooks their property. Ben and I both slept incredibly well. In the morning, we were pleasantly overwhelmed by the tasty feast Kathy had prepared for brunch to help us fuel up before our hike. We enjoyed our conversation with Bob and Kathy; we not only look forward to future stays here, but will also be recommending their BnB to others.

Beautiful home and even better hosts!! We stayed here for a wedding in Seaforth and had such a great experience here at Cathy’s. The room was very nice and well equipped with everything you need plus more! Breakfast was awesome but Cathy and her husband were even better. Truly two of the sweetest people we have ever met and so happy we chose to stay here. If you’re staying in the area I 100% recommend staying here. Thank you so much again!!

paragraph-divider-mdLife is good in the country

Going to Stratford? Look no further-this wonderful B&B is less than 20 minutes from the theatres and away from all the tourists. The ride is very straightforward. Cathy and Bob have put a tremendous amount of love and care in restoring their picturesque home. Upon arrival you will be joyfully greeted and sit in the parlour for your personalized breakfast menu. What a nice touch! Don’t worry about privacy at this B&B, Cathy and Bob know to take their cue from you! We stayed in the Dove’s Nest which was a lovely room at the top of the house with a full veranda and beautiful views of the meticulously cared for garden. The soaker tub allows for bubbles galore! The breakfast waiting for us the next morning was fit for a king and queen. My husband loves cinnamon buns, which Cathy made certain were present, the omelettes were fluffy and full, the fruit salad was of quality berries, grapes and melons, there was also cut cheese, fresh tomatoes, pumpkin butter, endless tea, coffee and conversation, if you so desire. We left feeling like we had a visit with our favourite family members. A true hidden secret in the Stratford area.

This B&B was a “Wow” from the moment I first contacted the owner, Cathy. She was supremely professional and helpful. We were attending a family wedding in the area, then half our party was heading to Stratford for a play the next day.
When we arrived, we were immediately made to feel welcome. Cathy made it possible for us to arrive a little earlier than what would be considered a typical check-in, so we could freshen up before the wedding.
Two members of our party needed to leave extremely early the next morning (unexpectedly) – no problem for Cathy – she had homemade muffins and coffee ready for them.
Then the rest of our party enjoyed a beautiful breakfast – all homemade and delicious. (She had touched base with us before we arrived to learn of any food preferences and/or allergies – she thinks of everything!)
Cathy and her husband, Bob sat down and joined us for a delightful meal and easy conversation – about everything!
Cathy is quite an accomplished gardener and Bob an accomplished woodworking artist. The two of them make a great team and each is clearly talented in many other arenas and entrepreneurial in spirit.
The grounds of their home are beautifully appointed – lighting is subtle at night – so very soothing. The entire property is well built and maintained – a perfect balance of modern conveniences with the charm of the heritage building they have preserved and updated so well.
In this review, I checked “trendy” and “quaint” which may seem confusing – just to be clear, this is a heritage property – but it has been masterfully outfitted with modern conveniences.
My partner and I definitely heading back there for a quiet stay, so we can really take advantage of the idyllic setting – it so obviously would suit any season.
Cannot say enough about this absolute Gem in Fullarton!

A trip back to the real world

We recently enjoyed a 2 night stay at Windbreak farm in the heart of Perth County, Ontario.
Not having much experience of B&B’s we were absolutely delighted by the farm, the home and our hosts, Cathy and Bob.
The work they have put in to make sure our stay was comfortable and rewarding is immense, the home and property are a delight, with great attention to detail and comfort for their guests. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast fit for a king/queen and Cathy and Bob take every opportunity to make sure you feel at home, cared for with genuine concern and that you leave there feeling that you have just left your best friend’s house – yes really! Access to all the Perth County offers is nearby and easy to get to. We are really pleased to have found them!

 Top quality B&B experience

We chose Windbreak Farm B&B because it was rural, not far from Stratford and promised to offer an authentic B&B experience with gracious hosts in a restored farm home over a century old. Our experience proved the promises correct. Cathy and Bob provided a fine breakfast, joining us in a wide ranging informative discussion about the area and their community. Their home, property and attentiveness demonstrate their commitment to quality. They are delightful people. We highly recommend Windbreak Farm B&B.

I came to the Stratford area to attend a few plays ai the Festival. My first accommodation choice has always been hostels, because they are inexpensive and you meet the most interesting people. But Stratford has none. So I checked out the B&B listings. This one felt that it would be somewhat similar to the hostel experience, in that you breakfast with the owners rather than on your own. It was lovely! From the very friendly and attentive cat to the conversations over breakfast with the owners and later with others who stayed there, it was warm and welcoming, peaceful and homey. Just what I needed for a restful vacation. Cathy and Bob where also very helpful sources of information about local attractions, and Bob’s woodwork is spectacular.
